Srila Prabhupada called it the encyclopedia of spiritual life, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu called it the amala (spotless) purana. The Srimad Bhagavatam (Bhagavata Purana) is the essential and complete guide to Krishna Consciousness.
When Srila Prabhupada in 1965 came on the Jaladuta ship to America he carried with him a box of some of these original first editions of Srimad Bhagavatam.
For years this original edition was almost impossible to see, except in collectors and museum shelfs behind glass. Now they have been reprinted in its original layout and typesetting, finally you are able to hold these books in your hands.
This is a must for your bookshelf as a collectors item as it contains this very unique first translation by Srila Prabhupada, before he came to the west.
